CBS SPortsCBS announced today that it will stream its full slate of NFL playoff games to PCs and tablets for the first time, beginning with a wildcard game this weekend.

The coverage will include all the network's AFC playoff games including one wildcard game, plus its coverage of the divisional and championship rounds.

The network will carry Sunday's Chargers v. Bengals tilt at 1:05PM EST, plus both divisional round games at Denver and New England on January 11 and 12, and the AFC Championship game on January 19.

The games will be viewable on CBSSports.com, but, due to the slim chance of non-sold out games, it remains a possibility that the games will be blacked out in some areas.

The NFL is hugely popular in the United States, with NFL-related content accounting for 9 of the top 10 most-watched TV programs of 2013.

How about Fox?
I'm pretty sure MacRumors would have mentioned Fox if there was anything to report about vis-a-vis NFL streaming on iOS devices.

The fact that they didn't leads me to believe that Fox did not concurrently announce anything when CBS did.

Well, I can finally remove this from my bucket called "Why aren't they doing this..."

And add it to the short list of "About ***** time..."


Seriously, play ads - just like the TV experience, but stream it! Seriously - get behind this with Chrome TV and Apple TV apps, Smart TV apps, push it to every TV and tell the cable and satellite companies to go jump off a cliff.

No cable subscription necessary? Is this real life?

Well, in theory, since they're a broadcast network, you should be able to watch the game over antenna virtually anywhere in the country. This is a lot different from the "cable" channels that do not broadcast OTA.

Thank goodness. I cut the cable a year ago and was prepared to hit up some sports bars to watch the games. Thanks CBS!

Last week, some iPhone users reported that Apple's iOS 17.5 update had introduced a bug that caused old photos that were deleted to reappear in the Photos app. Apple quickly released an iOS 17.5.1 update to fix the issue, but for many users, its explanation of "database corruption" in the release notes was all too brief, and did little to allay concerns about the privacy of their data.
